About Quentin

I have an AA degree (3.83 GPA) from Shasta College in Redding, CA. I love to learn and enjoy teaching! I am proficient in many subjects, but currently I only tutor Chess. I am logical, encouraging, and patient. I also have 15 years of experience working as a youth counselor. I have a partner as well who is very competent in chess and great with kids. We will teach your children the fundamentals of the game while making it fun and interesting. I have an AA degree (3.83 GPA) from Shasta College in Redding, CA. I love to learn and enjoy teaching!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chess

Chess has been around for centuries and will continue to be a game for developing intelligent minds. There is no end to the complexity and variations of chess. My partner and I have studied the game extensively over the years and have a fair amount of USCF official tournament experience between us. We would like to introduce your child to a world of intrigue and fascination. This may be one way to divert him/her from video games, among other things. In doing so it may also help to encourage social skills, sportsmanship, and self-esteem. We welcome adult players as well.
